Sonicfrog reports that some of my fellow conservative bloggers are upset that Rima Fakih “Michigan Muslim hottie has won the Miss USA Pageant“.
Now, having seen her pictures, I’m trying figure out what all the fuss is all about. She’s wearing a bikini not a burkha. And don’t Islamic radicals want women to cover it all up?
My sense (from what little I know of her) is that she is as far from the ideology of the Islamic extremists as are most Muslims in American society. This could actually be a very good thing to have her as Miss USA. Let’s wait and see. Or it could (as is most likely) just be a big ol’ nothing burger, just another pretty face with a title which gives her headlines and allows her to make public appearances.
Maybe she is dumb as a box of rocks (I have no idea I haven’t heard her speak), but if so, it just shows she has a lot in common with other winners of the title. From what little I’ve seen of her (on the web), she does carry herself very well–and has a great smile.
She defies the Islamicists who seek to oppress women like her merely by looking beautiful in a bikini and other attire which help bring out her natural beauty.
